As all we know, the information customers are no longer restricted to the passive adopters as it used to be. As a result, many new concepts and technologies came into the internet world, and one of them was WEB 2.0.
Probably, the first type of the WEB 2.0 that I encountered on the internet was urban dictionary, such as urbandictionary.com or internetslang.com. Since a numerous amount of new words is coined in everyday life, and we cannot find what they mean from conventional dictionaries, urban dictionary was kind of useful means to catch up and figure out the internet trends. Ever since the internet chat has been started, people coined a bunch of abbreviations and utilized them even in the actual lives. Personally, I am hardly ever fascinated by using those online chat abbreviations, nonetheless, sometime I need to know those meanings for getting information from the internet users. Not only in the online chat, but also in the computer technologies, there are countless acronyms, and some of those terminologies are hard to comprehend unless we look up professional IEEE documents. In this case, user-based dictionaries are instant and convenient tools to broaden our knowledge.
Although some of the definitions are inappropriate or even incorrect from time to time, it still has the value for internet users in an aspect of intercommunicating each other in digital world. Also, I believe it will be another foundation stone for more advanced internet culture, WEB 3.0.
